Python tests fail on filenames with $ signs on non-windows platforms

in r20036 I introduced a new python test, to validate the correct behaviour
of keyword (un)expansion on filenames containing $ signs.

The test works fine on Windows, but when running on linux and mac
buildslaves it fails.

I see in svntest/main.py that all command-line arguments for svn are wrapped
in double quotes, like this:
CMD: svn.exe "add" "svn-test-work\working_copies\trans_tests-1\id_exp
with_$_sign" "--config-dir"

On windows that works fine, but on linux/mac the $_sign will be recognized
as variable and be replaced.

I see two possible solutions:
1. On non-windows platforms, replace all $ signs with \$. Attached patch
will do that.
2. On non-windows platforms, use single-quotes instead of double quotes to
wrap the arguments.

While at first sight both solutions seem to work, I just want to make sure
that it will work on any platform Subversion support.

Input anyone?
